A Nigerian player plying his trade in Slovenia identified as Donatus Edafe has said he did not impregnate the club’s president’s daughter, as reported in some media.
The footballer was reportedly sacked from the club weeks ago over an alleged act of indiscipline.
Edafe, 26, moved from Nigeria to Slovenia chasing his dream of a great football career and while there in the hope to kick start what could possibly become the next big story, he made headlines for causing a small scandal, that ended up being a hoax, Brila FM.
While speaking with the sports radio station, the midfielder narrated what has become his travail.
“When I got there (ND Gorica), I wasn’t getting playing time and my Agent told the club I wanted to leave. I did and went to India.
“Only four foreigners were named on matchday day, but one had to sit on the bench. The club president asked that we be patient, but my Agent declined and we pulled the plug.
“So there was no wrong doing on my part or the club and we have a good relationship; even before I went to India, I visited the club.
“The president doesn’t have a daughter. When I saw the news last week I was shocked and I called my friend Amarachi Osuji, who was in Slovenia and he was unaware.
“The next day when I came back from training I saw my name attached to the story, I was so so mad. The reports attempted to tarnish my name and I will take this matter to the Court,” said Edafe.
